18 So then, as through (A)one offense [a]the result was condemnation to all mankind, so also through one (B)act of righteousness [b]the result was (C)justification of life to all mankind. 19 For as through the one man’s disobedience (D)the many (E)were made sinners, so also through (F)the obedience of the One (G)the many will be made righteous. 20 [c](H)The Law came in so that the offense would increase; but where sin increased, (I)grace abounded all the more, 21 so that, as (J)sin reigned in death, so also (K)grace would reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
